I have V21 Pro Platinum and i am mostly a beginner in 3D modelling.
My primary problem is that smooth curves are faceted when printed (and when displayed) typically 60-ish facets along the circumference of a cylinder when printed, and maybe fewer than that when displayed. I create the 3D objects, then save in STL format, then print using Cura.
I am not sure if the problem is in the generation of the STL, or in the native approximation of a smoothly curved 3D cylinder in TC.
I think that if I learn how to create a cylinder with a smooth curve then I will be able to generalize that technique to my other similar issues.
Since I am a beginner, and since my 3D solids are typically quite simple shapes, I generally start with a 2D drawing and then use the properties->3D menu to make it 3D with a certain height. Also, I typically hollow it out with another cylinder using 3D boolean subtract.
These are usually (always?) "solid" type objects instead of TC surface types. Using Faceting options does not seem to change the appearance on the screen. I don't know if it changes the STL.
What do I do to improve my printed objects?
P.S. with more checking I see that setting the ACIS options to highest quality does result in many more facets along the curve of a cylinder. Trying to modify "expert faceter parameters" does not seem to result in more facets than the basic faceter slider. How do i get it to produce even MORE facets?
